12 x Baratto Boutique Wines 2007 Unoaked Shiraz

$59.95 + Free Shipping until 24/05/08

Since 1949 the Baratto family have been making wine from their own grapes for family and friends.What started as a hobby has grown into a boutique winery due to increased demand thanks to these TRUE BOUTIQUE wines being supplied at exceptionally high value prices.

Totally estate grown, made and packed, this Shiraz cleanskin was the last of 12,000 litres destined for European export markets. We were fortunate enough to get a small quantity but once it is gone it is gone.We will not be able to restock! This Shiraz is genuine Boutique wine and genuine EXPORT quality!

Cleanskin means that the bottles do not have retail branding or labelling thus the ability to sell at below wholesale

While I haven't tried this unwooded Shiraz I would say at this price you have little risk as Shiraz is a robust grape style without the need of wood to give it 'backbone' and at the very least it will be educational to see what the difference makes to the style of the wine.

Plus it is FREE Shipping to anywhere in Australia!

    How do they brew it then?? Stainless vats?

    Its interesting the difference the varied woods give to the taste of good whisky but I find it hard to pick the finer differences between wines. The flavour of the grape tends to overpower the subtlety for me. Yes.... I know..... heathen ......

    Stainless Steel Vats pay a large role in aussie winemaking .. often conversly adding wood chips to the vats will give the desired result

    The wood balances harsh tannins & adds longevity & subtle complexities to wines .. ok if made and intended to cellar wines. A lot of wines are made for the drink now market so the wood is played down.
    Also Aussies are lucky that the climate etc gives rise to such an abundance of fruit driven wines

    No such thing as Heathen in wine tastes IMHO .. each to their own! :cool:

    I'd always known stainless vats were used in the initial phase but then the wine was cellared in wood for a period after. Had no idea they would simply put woodchips in.

    I've drunk a few wines that im sure have had something like jarrah chips in there where they've not quite removed them again. Pull the splinters out of your tongue sort of stuff.
